Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees

It is Durlston Court’s policy to encourage excellence and to welcome talented pupils who, without the assistance of a scholarship, may not be able to access a Durlston education. A Durlston Court Scholarship, therefore, recognises Excellence.

A limited number of Academic, Music and Sports Scholarships are available (subject to places being available) and are awarded on merit only, following examination.
